Dakota Fanning debuted her new chocolate brown hair colour over the weekend on Instagram. The star is known for her trademark blonde locks, which we have seen since she was little in films such as I Am Sam and Charlotte's Web, but the 17-year-old has braved a darker dye.
This is the first time we have seen her darker hairstyle and don't know yet if it is a permanent change or for a film role. But Dakota started at NYU last month so perhaps it is part of her new low-key university look she has been rocking recently. Note the glasses on her forehead, a chunky scarf and big coat in the instagram pic which are all student staples. Get the girl to a library!
Take a look in the pictures above of Dakota's new hair and we've added a picture of her as a teeny tot with a blonde bob just for the aww factor. Let us know what you think of Dakota Fanning the brunette...
